The shortage of qualified and skilled nurses and LVNs is putting a bigger demand on the health care industry. To keep up with this demand, Lone Star College-Kingwood invites potential and current students to the fall Nursing Information Sessions located in the Student Conference Center (SCC) room 104. The meetings are on Sept. 4 and Nov. 6 at 5 p.m., and Oct. 2 and Dec. 4 at 1 p.m.

"The purpose of the information session is to meet with potential students and give them a detailed overview of the Nursing Program. Attendees will also learn about the courses and certifications that we offer, said Nickie Loftin, nursing program director. "We also inform them of program requirements and fees necessary for registration."
 
The Nursing Program recommends potential students to attend the information sessions before applying for the program. The meeting lasts one to two hours, and students do not have to reserve a spot.
 
LSC-Kingwood's Nursing Program students offers training to become a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) and two options to become a Registered Nurse (RN). The Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) is one of the most in-demand, high-growth career tracks in the industry. Graduates are eligible to become registered nurses, who provide and coordinate care for patients. LVNs offer a wide variety of essential patient care under the supervision of a registered nurse or physician. Career options for both paths include hospitals, long-term facilities, clinics, and other health care facilities.
 
"The mission of LSC-Kingwood's Nursing Program is to provide flexible and innovative educational opportunities to accommodate working adults. We also strive to facilitate their nursing goals and student success," Loftin said.

@Weathergirl5 : I'm sure it is. My daughter has a friend who went through the physical therapy assistant program and got a job within a week.

@Weathergirl5 : People have degrees in fields where the person can't even get a job or applying for jobs where the starting income is less than 40K, this includes some people with a Masters degree. Kids are getting degrees with an easy course load just to get out of college.

The way to go is actually going from RN to getting your Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN) that's were the big bucks are. That's what the big hospitals want.
 
Btw I work for a RN to BSN program at local university. Let me know if any one is interested in knowing more.

@cupid517 : So true. These days there are a lot of degrees that will never make you rich. Plus finding a job might be difficult. If I was starting out college now I'd be a pharmacist.
